Good Vibes Stoner Gag



This was probably my favorite contribution to Good Vibes. At the end of production, show creator, Brad Ableson, approached a few of us to do some interchangeable "stoner gags" for the intro of the show. It was extremely flattering and I had way too much fun with this thing. We were given total freedom to design, layout, and animate the entire thing ourselves as well as come up with the gag itself which was pretty refreshing. The ideas ranged from Mondo and Woodie as 8-bit characters...to Mondo and Woodie as fish...to Mondo and Woodie drawn in the style of Ralph Steadman.
I'm pretty sure there were 8 total and they all turned out fantastic. It was great to be allowed to run free with these. Above is my stoner gag done in an old timey rubber hose style.
